Historical Traveler Reviews The Grange Ballygawley
Will stay here again.
My wife and I stayed here in August. We are in our mid fifties and I must say that we liked this hotel. The location is outstanding: one hundred yards from Metro Hotel d'Ville, on the edge of the Marais, across the street from a Saturday A.M. food marche, and 2 short blocks from the river. (3 blocks to the point on Ile de St Louis where you can have your picque-nicque.) Top floor is best (rooms 17 thru 20). English speaking staff most helpful. Parisien standard small rooms for this price range. Four cafes in a small place next door are great but can be noisy with the windows open.
I do not understand why this hotel received such good reviews. Good location and that's basically it. It is kind of OK for low budget travelers. Room small but fine, but shower was terrible - dirty, VERY small with hairs stuck between the tiles and in a shower head. We asked to move us to a different room. Stuff was helpful and they did move us.
New room had a tub which also looked old. It was most unpleasant and stressful time - going to the shower. I would not stay in this hotel again.
Hotel de Nice is the best
The breakfast room is very beautiful and the management is extremely friendly. Although the rooms are small (and the showers REALLY small), the location and the ambience is wonderful.
Fantastic Parisian Experience for our family
We found this hotel to be totally charming. It was in a fantastic position, so close to public transport, shops, fantastic restaurants and some major tourist sites. We loved our family room on the top floor, which had an amazing view from the balcony to the streets below.
We could even see Notre Dame. We found the street noise to be minimal (maybe because we were high up) and not a problem. The staff were friendly enough once you made the effort to talk to them; the rooms were nice and clean (ours was even quite large in Parisian standards)-which was good because we had 3 children with us- and the breakfast was good. Only minor things stopped it from being 'perfect' - there was no fridge in the room to keep drinks etc for the children and no double bed in the family room (heh, this is supposed to be the city of love). I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone.
Great little hotel, very central and reasonable rates, I will stay there again next time I'm in Paris.
After reading positive reviews, I was expecting a quaint hotel room at the Hotel de Nice, effusing Parisian charm. Unfortunately, I was a bit disappointed. The room and bed linens were clean, but the hotel is a bit ramshackle, and our room was miniscule. It was difficult to pass between the end of the bed and the wall. I've lived in France and certainly know to expect smaller spaces, no air conditioning and French aloofness, but this hotel was a disappointment even to this former French resident.
Great location, pity about the smiles
If you haven't visited Paris for the Fete de la Musique, you should. Always on 21 June,music of all sorts (counter tenors to down & dirty) throughout the city until dawn. The atmosphere is very friendly, and if you aren't enjoying Satan's Wristwatch at The Lizard Lounge - we weren't - just move on, there's plenty more - 2 naked trombonists on top of a bus shelter was a distinct improvement.Hotel de Nice is in a splendid location at the bottom of the Marais, 2 blocks from the Isle St Louis, in a busy little square off the Rue de Rivoli. Like many small Paris hotels it is tall and thin; if you can face the underpowered lift, or stairs, we would suggest the higher the better; one of our rooms at the very top had 2 balconies and you could just see the fleche on Notre Dame. The eclectic decor is memorable (and fun) which is more than can be said for the reception staff:Parisienne hauteur with knobs on. At 100 Euros/double we thought it good value; we usually pay much less and accept the atmospheric squalor.
A truely charming and romantic Parisian hotel
What a wonderful little hotel! Its location on the edge of the Marais couldn't be better -Tiny cobbled streets packed with restaurants & shops( Much better than those on the anonymous boulevards close to the the Eiffel Tower). Most rooms come with a wrought iron balcony and ours overlooked a pretty square. The room was quite small (that's not unusual in Paris) - but with handpainted furniture and floral patterned fabrics it was everything I expected a Parisan hotel to be. I have stayed twice and will be going back again.
Charming Noisy Nights
Very nice, charming, but guests coming and going from the cafe below can be on the LOUD side in the middle of the night. Seemed to be a place a lot of motorcycle riders frequent.
A Great Little Hotel
The Hotel de Nice is in a brilliant position on the edge of the Marais district, 2 minutes from a Metro station, and less than 10 minutes at strolling pace from Notre Dame. There are lots of great cafes and restaurants in the area,and plenty of interesting shops (including good supermarkets).
The rooms are charming, comfortable and full of character with lots of unusual decorative touches from the Paris flea markets. Even the wallpaper in my room was worth photographing! i spent several days, and appreciated the good sized room.
I found it great value for money and a really special part of my Paris experience.

Today is an early start but not the earliest. Our cab is coming at 8 to pick us up as we are heading on a day trip to Vaux le Vicomte and Chateaux de Fontainebleau. Therefore Dave does not go to the bakery in the morning but we eat yesterday's bread and have yogurt, fruit and granola for breakfast. We get downstairs and the cab is waiting (we used a different company as the usual did not have any cabs available. We were a little worried about if we would get a cab or not but the ...
... she looked down at the ridiculous scene from above it all and laughed behind her lips at the utter foolishness. I was honestly so upset by this experience I almost left The Louvre then and there.
Unfortunately, I stayed long enough to witness something that upset me even more: Pete and I were looking at some of the other artworks in The Mona Lisa's gallery and as we were standing in front of one, a guy came bowling up from behind us, leant over ...
... I found that most enjoyable. We were totally blessed with the weather as the weeks leading up to the trip were really awful on almost all of our route and we only had that one wet and miserable day while driving from France to Switzerland. I couldn't fault either of the two ships for comfort, facilities, food or service. Speaking of food, I have put on a few kilos in the two weeks, along with every other passenger. I have previously documented some details of ...
... so early in the morning, but the rain kept falling and some people (Renee and Matthew) hadn't kept their umbrellas in their camera bags. Luckily, we made it to the Pyramid entrance and did not have to stand in the pouring rain for too long as we had our Museum Pass and found out they had a separate line for that. Once inside, there are different ticket windows where you can wait in line or you can grab your map and head right in if you have the ...

The cute tour operator drove us there via the motorway but on the return journey we came back via some really beautifully gorgeous little villages...I'm sure the villages we are about to walk through are going to be just as delightful.
